Osmo Decking Oil is ideal for protecting and maintaining your garden decking, but can also be used on most untreated garden furniture.
Dries to a smooth satin-matt finish that is very water-resistant, dirt repellent and easy to maintain and re-finish when required.
It is important to ensure that any new wood has been weathered for at least 6 weeks prior to application to ensure optimal performance and penetration of the oil.
Osmo Decking Oil provides a durable protective finish for all types of softwood and hardwood decking, smooth or grooved. Water-repellent and UV resistant, Osmo decking Oil reduces the risk of swelling and shrinkage and can be over-coated with a single coat of Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil 430 if required.
decked areas must be clean, dry and frost-free. Old paints, varnishes and other surface coatings must be removed by sanding or with a Paint and Varnish Remover. Old applications of oil based treatments or stains need to be cleaned or lightly sanded. If sanding, use a 120 to 150 grit sandpaper and remove all traces of surface dust.
New wood: If possible apply first coat on all sides of the wood before installation. Hardwoods with an especially high content of oil, leave to weather for about 2 to 3 months (in winter up to 5 months) or wipe over with White Spirit to degrease the surface.
For additional protection against blue stain, rot and mildew, pre-treat with Osmo WR Base Coat 4005 or with Osmo Wood Protector 4006 (biocide-free).
Osmo Decking Oil is ready to use straight from the tin and can be applied with a brush or cloth. Stir well before application and use a brush or soft lint free cloth to apply a thin, even coat of oil along the wood grain. Wipe off any excess when finished and leave to dry. Apply second coat as above or alternatively, apply a single coat of Osmo Anti Slip Decking Oil 430 if required.
Surfaces treated with Osmo Decking Oil are very easy to clean and maintain. Just use a moist cloth with Osmo Wash And Care 8016. Particularly persistent stains can easily be removed with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner 3029. If necessary, apply a further coat of Osmo Decking Oil onto areas that have become worn or dull due to high foot traffic.
Thinning and Cleaning
Application brushes and equipment can be cleaned with white spirit.
This product can be stored up to 5 years or more if the tin is full and tightly closed. Store in dry place. If thickened by frost it will regain its normal consistency under normal temperatures within 24-36 hours.
If there is an amount left over after application, it is recommended that the remaining oil is poured into an alternative container of the same volume e.g. 1 ltr of oil left pour into a 1 ltr drinks bottle or other secure container. By filling the alternative container to the rim and securing an air tight lid, the remaining oil will stay in good condition for much longer than if left in a container half filled with air.
Osmo decking oil is safe for human, animal and plant when fully dried.
Allow 10 to 12 hours drying time between coats and the final finish. Drying times may vary depending on the decking type, air temperature and humidity.
